Why Don’t Liberals Like The Idea Of Sending Illegal Aliens To Sanctuary Cities?

On the Friday edition of The Daily Daily Caller Podcast, we have a great interview with Arthur Brooks, president of the American Enterprise Institute and author of the new book, “Love Your Enemies: How Decent People Can Save America from the Culture of Contempt.”

Before we get into the interview, we cover the arrest of Julian Assange, the continued liberal freak-out over the attorney general looking into the origins of the hoax Russia investigation, and how Democrats are upset over a Washington Post story about the Trump administration considering releasing illegal aliens in sanctuary cities.

If illegal aliens are the boon to the economy leftists say they are, and they commit fewer crimes than Americans as leftists swear they do, why would the idea of more of them in cities that protect illegals upset anyone? Weird, right?

Listen to the whole show:

Watch the Arthur Brooks interview:

Julian Assange was finally arrested after a seven-year standoff with authorities in the U.K. and is now facing extradition to the United States to face a whole list of charges. Perhaps the world’s worst houseguest, Assange has no fans on the left or the right. But the First Amendment might ultimately save him. We explain.

Liberals are still outraged over the idea of the American people finding out how the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign. Former FBI Director James Comey said he doesn’t think the Federal Government listening in on the phone calls and reading electronic communications of people should be considered “spying” because it’s court-ordered. Yes, he really said that. We have the audio.

Democrats are accusing the Trump administration of dirty tricks after a Washington Post story claimed that the White House is considering releasing illegal aliens in sanctuary cities as some kind of retaliation against left-wing politicians defying federal immigration laws.

The weird thing is: These very same people who view this as some kind of punishment have been swearing for the last three years that illegal aliens are a huge net-positive to the economy and commit far fewer crimes that Americans, so you’d think they’d be happy to have them. It’s almost like the president was calling their bluff, and they blinked.
